I am impressed with the vision and execution of your mission of providing tools for donors & volunteers to find, review, and analyze non-profits. I like the ability of scanning your 32 Issues categories for areas I am interested in. Clicking on your most reviewed designation, I am able to have at my fingertips some of the most popular non-profits. Browsing the various reviews and ratings within those popular charities gives me a way to validate such charities. Although I need to go to other sites to review the financial statement for the charities I want to research further, you have provided a valuable service to tens of thousands of people. I believe that such information has multiplied into unimaginable good. From a testimonial perspective, your tool has helped a charity I work with. Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance out of NJ has kept its light under the bushel for 29 years. You might imagine that a group serving tens of thousands of poor spanning 56 countries misht be well knowm. Although our 503 missionaries have known it well over the years, until your greatnonprofits.org 2013 ratings review effort that just ended, few in the world would have known that such a charity existed. This diamond hidden in the rough is getting good reviews because it has delivered 100% of donations it received to aid the poor by taking no salaries and having a founder absorb all operating costs through her sacrifice. Although our many thousands of poor could not vote without internet, you provided a life-changing tool for the world to learn. In MQAN's case, scores of missionaries found a way to give voice and hope to our poor. You have thousands of other non-profits doing good. Your information dissemination tool is surely like multiplication of the loaves. For all non-profits, a big THANKS.
This is a good nonprofit, they really put a lot of effort and care into what they do.
The nonprofit cares deeply about helping other nonprofits. I respect that.
The organization has a lofty mission of helping to inspire donors and volunteers. I appreciate that.
I worked with GreatNonprofits throughout the whole summer. I had a great experience and learned a little bit of everything, from marketing to research. Besides the skills I obtained through my internship, I was also able to be part of meetings with some of our funders such as The California Endowment and The California Wellness Foundation which was really exciting as I was only an intern. Through this internship, I was definitely able to get my hands wet with the nonprofit world. I worked with a team that really valued what they were doing as an organization and are really passionate about philanthropy and charity work.
I am a new summer intern for GreatNonprofits. It is a lovely and highly professional team. I am really thankful for the emphasis they put on the personal and professional growth of the interns.
GreatNonProfits is committed and passionate about it's cause - to give voice and credibility to local non-profits and a platform for donors, volunteers, public etc to read reviews about non-profits, they wish to get involved with. It's been an awesome learning experience at GreatNonProfits. I learnt new skills and tools . Also, I got to interact with industry experts. They have a very open, learning and empowering culture. The team is good, helpful and encouraging. I am thankful to Perla Ni, for extending this opportunity to me and making me feel so welcome and part of the group.
This site receives participation from fella's from all over the world. I find them generous, honest and helpful. I'm glad I found them and am happy to participate in helping others overcome and adapt.
During a very hard time in my life, I was able to connect with other straight spouses after my husband told me that he was gay and our marriage was over. It was such a stressful time in my life, and not a story I felt I could share with all of my friends and family. Being able to connect with others who had gone through exactly the same thing gave me some much needed perspective, and now I am proud to be a face-to-face contact in my home province of Saskatchewan, Canada.
it was an amazing experience. Helping people who are in need and seeing that the tiniest things help is incredible. it was the first time i really saw how healing acupuncture is :)
As a summer intern at GreatNonprofits, I found the staff to be incredibly amiable, flexible, and helpful. Perla Ni, the founder and CEO, is a great boss and gives her interns a lot of freedom to find projects they are interested in and really takes care of us. It truly is a great place to work and I recommend anyone seeking a summer internship in the Bay Area to apply.
While interning at GreatNonprofits this past year, I had the opportunity to learn about and experience great nonprofits everyday, reading reviews and researching organizations as well as working behind the scenes as a staff member. I'm amazed at all that the organization does with such a small staff, and they continue to find ways to grow, improve, and extend their reach. Though the organization still has room for improvement and kinks to work out, I know GreatNonprofits will continue to help organizations get their story told and provide this critical tool to the world of social change.
I am pleased to volunteer my time with GreatNonprofits.org. I originally helped to beta-test the website by putting up profiles for me and for the charity I work for and working out the bugs. Next I was a "site monitor" to help ensure that reviews met the standards for civil discourse. I enjoy working with the staff; they really care about helping nonprofits tell their stories through profiles and reviews. After my experience I would not donate to or volunteer for an organization without researching them.
I had the pleasure of working for GreatNonprofits during the second half of 2010, and I truly believe in this organization's ability to revolutionize the nonprofit sector. I spoke to many nonprofits during my time there that raved about GreatNonprofits and the powerful feedback/storytelling tool it provides. Perla Ni and her fabulous team are giving a voice to those most closely touched by nonprofits -- people whose stories might not be heard otherwise. The GreatNonprofits staff is composed of some of the most dedicated and hardworking people I have ever met; their belief in and commitment to the GreatNonprofits mission is a testament to the organization's value.
